As you may have imagined, this topic didn’t go over so well with everybody. There were men and women who called it divisive and counterproductive to the struggle to end racism in this country and abroad. You know how black folk do, we’re taught not to air out our dirty laundry for the masses but to suffer in silence, behind closed doors. Apparently, it’s only possible to ride for one cause at a time. Furthermore, even if that was the case, it’s a shame more men and women don’t find it important to deal with the issues in our own homes and communities before we go out and fight the man. I’m sure there are those who were offended but those people probably didn’t take the opportunity to look at the discussion as a way for us to grow and heal ourselves. There’s work to do all around.
